I've never won more than $2 bucks on a "scratcher" as Iowan's call them. But, I guess "you can't win if you don't play". Turns out some luck is involved and the was the keyfor this lucky lady.

According to a press release, Beverly Key of Raymond won the big prize in the Iowa Lottery's "$300,000 Platinum Cash" scratch game. She purchased her winning ticket at Road Ranger, 100 Plaza Drive in Elk Run Heights. She claimed her prize on Tuesday at the lottery’s Cedar Rapids regional office. Key claimed the 29th of 42 prizes of $30,000 in the game. So, that means there's more $$$ out there. You better go by some "scratchers" and good luck!
